State Police join search for missing IU student

Several Indiana State Police Troopers spent Father's Day looking for missing IU student Lauren Spierer.

Spierer has been missing for more than two weeks.  Her parents remain in Bloomington but have not talked to the media today.  They will address the media on Monday, when daily police briefings resume.

In addition to State Police Special Operations Troopers, volunteers also spent the day looking for any clues in Lauren's case.  Despite the rain and it being Father's Day, the community is not slowing down in the search for the 20-year-old from New York.  Volunteers 18 and older can join searches daily.  Volunteers are asked to sign in at the IU McNutt Center on the campus.  More information can be found at

Lauren Spierer is described as approximately four feet, 11 inches tall with a slender build. She has blue eyes and blonde hair, longer than shoulder length. The 20-year-old had just finished her sophomore year at IU. Anyone with information should call Bloomington police at 812-339-4477.

Spierer's mother Charlene Spierer said Lauren has a life-threatening heart condition called Long QT Syndrome. Her mother has asked if anyone knows where Lauren is, to please take her to a hospital.
